Ensuring that Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) considerations are taken into account in both thinking and action, is crucial both to working with colleagues and providing a service to tenants, residents and customers.

This workshop will enable you to raise your awareness of EDI issues, and see how, individually and collectively, you can make a contribution to EDI practice in your organisation.

We’ll cover both some frameworks for thinking about EDI, and some practical examples of situations. It will improve your self-awareness and will give you practical ideas and tools for moving forward.
